TUESDAY, NOVEMEKK .19,. 194ft Well-Groomed Look Must Keep Up Their Appearance And Stay Within A Budget fly ALICIA HART NBA Service Stan' Writer Airline hostesses, those good- looking girls in a comparatively new field of work for "women, are excellent proof of the .sound theory that being attractive is more a matter of time and'good;taste than of money. All of these : girls who.are';'in regular attendance on most ••. of America's passenger airplanes 'manage to look extremely well on low budr gets; Being attractive is an important part of u hostess' job. It is, as a matter of fact, near the top on the list ol requirements whkh include, among other things, the ability to be a really interested listener, being good-natured whether she feels like it or not, calmness in an emergency and ability to figure out time tables (a neat trick). Ii> addition, when she makes application for a job as airline hostess, u girl mast be a registered nurse, between the ages of 21 and 20. She cannot weigh more than 120 pounds or be taller than 5 ft 6 in.' First thing the student airline Hostess Ls asked . to do when she enters the training class for hostesses at American • Airlines is to get an excellent permanent wave. Then, during the six weeks of training, she is expected, to wash and .set her own hair and to manicure her own nails. Whether she continues to do her own hair and nails after graduation Ls up tc each student. The.chances are that she will. Most of the girls do. They save both time and money this way, and, in addition, never have to run the risk of looking frowsy for even a day simply because there's no beauty shop handy. Each American Airline hostess uses a lubricating cream on her skin every night to combat the dryness. which continuous flying in high altitudes is likely to bring about. The average hostess buys tiny jars of the /more expensive brands of night cream. She always carries a makeup kit which includes cleansing cream as well us .makeup. Among other rules that her employers insist she follow are: Use a deodorant every day. •. Use a mojtithwash before every trip: and it it's a long one-, several times during* the crip. Apply hand cream frequently. Remove supcrfibus. hair from the legs once ; a. week. "Wear only the light shades of nail polish. Wear' no eye makeup unless lashes and brows are. quite colorless : THEY WATCH THEIR WEIGHT To keep their weight down to 120, the stewardesses go in for active sports on their days off and do limbering-, stretching-. and reducing exercises'-for. ten minutes in the morning on working days They eat moderately, but most of them prefer exercising to dieting whenever they need to lose a pound or two. The average airline hostess plans fco use part of the day every other time she is off duty to' care for her clothes as well as Her "person. She goes about washing; and ironing blouses, taking shoes tc the repair shop for lifts and shines, securing straps on slip? and pressing her attractive uniform-suits in a business-like way She takes her grooming routines seriously. She - has to. Her job won't permit haphazard methods- And neither will her budget, She can't afford to neglect her skin ' and hair until they demand expensive, professional attention.

The posse, led by a Mrs Lillie Barber, who had succeeded to the sheriff's badge after her husband had been killed by bootleggers, closed in on Wagner:'••'•He came out of a 'clump of bushes hands upland surrendered. : "I gave'up because I wos tired of being hounded like a dog," : Wagner said, possibly thinking of another verse for the ballad -When-I saw that a woman was leading the posse, I threw in the -sponge.
